The two clubs were in action on Sunday afternoon at the Accra Sports Stadium as the top-flight league made a return after over a year's absence.
In a crucial first game of the season, the Phobians were shocked at home as they were beaten by a goal to nil by the club from Berekum.

He continued, “I am very sad because first much defeat is very very painful but it is part of football so we have to focus on our next game and continue”.
